Objects abandoned, forgotten, rusted at the bottom of the picturesque port of agia euphemia in kefalonia.
Where we ship thousands of boats every year.
Others were there by accident.
Others were thrown without a second thought.
But always with total lack of environmental conscience.
Behaviors that no longer fit in this country.
Habits that have no place on this planet.
Lifestyle We need to change.
Culture we need to build.
